Stakeholders engaged in the development and management of the Shannon Estuary have initiated a new marketing drive to promote investment into deep water marine opportunities.

Clare County Council, Kerry County Council and Limerick City & County Council have joined up with IDA Ireland, Shannon Commercial Properties and Shannon Foynes Port Company in producing a prospective marketing brochure package about the area.

The package details six development locations appropriate for marine-related investment.

Clare County Council senior planner Brian McCarthy said: "The Shannon Estuary Region is an attractive investment location for companies in the pharmaceutical, manufacturing and ICT sectors due to the global connectivity offered by Shannon Airport, the quality of lifestyle, and the abundance of world-class third level education facilities and graduates."
